UEFA Cup Round Up – 5 questions


22nd, February 2008

Five British teams played their second leg ties in the UEFA Cup last night with four of them managing to make it through to the last 16 of Europe’s secondary competition.
Spurs started brightly but then stuttered towards the end and Sparta Prague could have taken the tie into extra time had the returning Paul Robinson not pulled off a world class save – Can Robbo make it back to being England’s No.1?
Everton claimed the most impressive scoreline with a 6-1 victory over Swiss minnows Brann. Yakubu scored the second Everton hat trick of his career – Does that mean he’s done enough for David Moyes to forgive him after he recently went AWOL in Africa?
Click through for a look at the other results and the draw for the last 16.

Bolton’s scoreless draw against Athletico Madrid, a team in the top four of La Liga, was probably the most surprising result. With the club still struggling for Premier League form but excelling in Europe – Is Gary Megson the ginger Rafa Benitez?
Rangers are still dreaming of doing the quadruple after an away goal in Greece saw them advance with a late away goal from Nacho Novos – How many trophies do you think the Scots will eventually win this season?
The only British team that couldn’t reach the last 16 was poor Aberdeen who were stuffed by Bayern Munich going went out 7-3 on aggregate – Can anyone see past the Germans as the eventual winners of this competition?
Bolton Wanderers v Sporting Lisbon
Fiorentina v Everton
Rangers v Werder Bremen
